August

Good afternoon, folks. Here’s our calendar for August. We are looking at three Fests this month. We have a ham fest in Lexington on the 10th and a biggie in Huntsville on the 17th. We’ll test in Princeton on the 17th, too. The other fest starts on the 23rd at Kenlake State Resort Park. It, however, is a Bluesfest. Quite an event in itself. We will radio from there, too. The Sturgeon full moon rises on the 15th. The monthly club meeting will be on the 20th at Hardee’s as usual. Come see us at Hardee’s any Tuesday. Don’t forget the Tri-County ARES net at 7:00 PM on Tuesdays on our 145.230 repeater. And, tune in to the Kentucky All Digital Net on the 444.175 machine at 7:00 PM on Saturdays. It’s really cool to listen to check-ins from all around the country and all around the globe on the Wires X system. Hook up with the Yaesu line of digital radios on the C4FM side of things and open up the world. The club is working on putting up a new repeater in Trigg County just outside of Cadiz. We are coordinated! All that is left is the “fine print”. The frequency is 442.825 with a tone of ‘123’. Plug that into your radio in advance. Stay on the cool side of the door, and we’ll listen for you on the club nets……..73……..Mikie……..…
